"It will take a while, but we will ultimately have our USB-C single-charger utopia scenario."

… by which moment the industry will invent a new "universal" standard. The only way to break this stupid vicious circle is to stop obsessively buy new shit every 2 years. Your 5-year old phone and your 20-year old headphones are perfectly good.

That'd be reasonable if it wasn't for the whole thing of new OS versions being deprecated for old devices

@dittoslash it's a consequence, not a cause. If people would stay with their old devices, Google and Apple would extend their support periods. Of course they don't want to, but it's perfectly feasible.

And again, your 4-year old OS on a 2-year old phone is still perfectly good. You can still do amazingly useful stuff with it without having a new "design language".
